Kosher fast food chain McDavid is returning to Israel. The chain operated in Israel in the 1980s and 1990s, before competition from MacDonald's and Burger King forced it out. McDavid will open its first branch in Upper Nazareth next week, and the chain's franchisee promises to open more branches across the country over the coming year.
McDavid is owned by Joseph Askar. The new Israeli franchisee, Nadav Karodo once owned a Burgeranch franchise.
McDavid said, "McDavid meets all state-of-the art standards of the fast food industry. With a little Israeli chutzpa, it will win its place as a worthy alternative for recreation at fast food chains."
The menu will include the Hot-David frankfurter, with self service condiments, a David Kids meal that includes a surprise, chicken wings in chili sauce, a spicy Mexican style hamburger, and a double schnitzel. All items can be made spicier at the customer's request. A regular meal will cost NIS 29.90.
